I bought this to replace an older skillet of the same brand that after 21 years was beginning to lose its non stick surface. I know this one will give me the same great service that the old one provided. I own a lot of this brand but this skillet is the one I use almost daily and is my go to friend in the kitchen.

Like the first two skillets that Henckels introduced in the Thermolon series, this 4 qt. saucepan is an outstanding addition to my kitchen. To test it I made a batch of Toffee which I brought to a hard crack. I was able to pour it onto wax paper in a sheet pan without using any implement at all; it slid right out. Amazing?
If you don't have any of this buy some and start with the large skillet. I use mine every day. Never been as happy with any piece of cookware in my life and I cook a lot. Absolutely the best on the market, clean up is a breeze simply wipe it out, that's it even with candy Outstanding.

This is the most non stick of any non stick I have ever owned. I have had the 12" pan for a week now and after cooking on it the first time I decided I had to have the 10" too. Use it, let it cool, wipe it out with a paper towel and you are done. Conducts heat better that any of my other non stick skillets. This is a must have for any serious cook. It sears like it is cast iron. This has become the go to skillet in my kitchen.

This fryer is everything and more than it promised. I have used it about 5 times since getting it and find it to be one of the most useful items in my kitchen. It is easy to use and extremenly easy to clean. The filter on the lid actually does really work and keeps the orders of the frying from filling the house. I would recommend this to everyone and it truly is professional grade. I love it.

Le Creuset never disappoints and this addition to my collection is more than worth the price I paid for it. It's solid construction and perfectly fitting lid makes preparation of even the most exacting stocks a dream come true. I prepare beef, chicken, fish and vegetable stocks every month for later use so I have used this item 6 times in the two weeks I have had it. I have stored all my other stock pots now that I have this one. Outstanding does not say enough.

This is the neatest tool I own and I own a lot of tools. It will open any jar lid including beer bottles if you need it to. Once you have this you will defeat any jar with any lid no matter what they put the lid on with. I highly recommend it and don't see how any kitchen can do without one. Totally a great tool.
